I have an interesting mushroom fairy house painting tutorial to show you today. This is done on an 11 x 14-inch canvas. Of course, I use acrylic paint, so I’m going to continue. In the beginning, I will paint the sky first, or the sky background around the mushroom house. These are two colors of Phthalocyanine Blue and Titanium White.
I used a three-quarter-inch flat scrub. I used student-grade acrylic to paint the Liquitex basics. A mixture of royal necessities and some art deco American artists’ lofts. But in terms of color, they are very similar to each other. We will continue to put our brushes in water and then in phthalocyanine blue. So first, install the brush with water, And then assign it to the paint.
This will help the color flow; I will use these texture strokes to complete the entire background, which means I will not go left and right; I will not go up and down; I am just doing some medium.
These strokes are angled and cross-hatched. I want to mix a little white here, so I will use this phthalocyanine blue to go down half of the canvas. It is a very thin layer of paint. I will not stick ita skinnynything, even the whole um with this kind of textured thing. You will get some strokes to show up. So you can if you don’t want it to look too thin, then please check a little. Take a look at these brush strokes.
when you are about it, I think it’s not about half of it. You want to grab a little white on the brush and start adding white there. So that the white will lightly blend with the phthalocyanine blue, and it will cover the color with the paint To blend. So I’m still using that white for those angular texture strokes.
We don’t want to get super light here too fast, so it’s just a little bit of white. We just light up ours gradually as we work downwards For the sky. I just kind of go back to some of the brush strokes at the top. Um, I like the textures and brush strokes there, that’s why I do it this way. If you don’t like that style, you can always draw left and right strokes or up and down strokes, so If you like to make a different kind of sky.
Well, it’s up to you, so this is just the background part, so if you don’t like textured brushstrokes. It would be nice to make horizontal brushstrokes on the canvas, so I will gradually add more white to my color.
As I work, it will become brighter and brighter. I almost have to walk along with the canvas, but I want to leave about two to three inches at the bottom. The gap is where our grass area is. I didn’t measure it. I just estimated it’s okay.
Just continue to add more white dots to the tip of your brush, and you can work your way down to the canvas. At the bottom, it will blend on the canvas, and then you can gently brush that color back to the sky so that it gradually darkens on the top.
You have to be careful on the top, especially if the blue starts to dry. It may not blend with you at all. For me, it’s still a bit wet, but I tend to draw fast and work fast so I can do it faster Deal with my color. If the blue is dry, it may not be best to try to blend it. If you want to re-use it like a second coat, you may need to add more blue to the brush. But if the blue keeps drying and we don’t want it, Then mixing white there may not work well. It becomes too bright there. We don’t want the sky to be the same color.
Make the ground
We did this, so next, we will make the ground. Well, I won’t measure this, but there are about three inches of space at the bottom. It will overlap with some of the bottoms of our blue tube, but it’s okay. We’re going to load the palette with two different greens, and of course. I’m also going to rinse my brushes here because we’re not as good as we When making this green grass. I don’t want to paint any blue things with permanent green tones. Suppose you don’t have those exact colors. In that case, you can use any light green and dark green.
I just mix the two, So it will form a medium green. I just apply it to the bottom. Hence, a little bit of water there helps to flow, but um, there is grass in this picture. Still, now this is just what we are at the bottom. The first layer of paint, so we can cover all the white canvas on the bottom, so I will add this color at the so that time. Then It will overlap with our blue a little bit, and then start from there, so it is estimated to be about er.
I guess it’s about two and a half three inches, and then fill the bottom area, so if you want to get that kind of left and right strokes here, you Make the back a little lighter to create some depth in your ground area. Still, you don’t have to do this at all. If you don’t, it won’t change too much. The result of the painting is not exactly that way. I like to grab the white and Blend it to the top; I am using the tip of the brush to put that line there. It does not have to be a perfectly straight line.
There will be many things covering the area, so if it is curved or not curved or wavy, Yes, just fill all the white canvas. You will need to wait for it to dry before you can proceed to the next step. You can take a hairdryer and dry it quickly. Then we are going to paint.
Rinse your brush, put it aside, dry your painting
Next is our mushrooms, so rinse your brush, put it aside, dry your painting, or take a break, then come back. This is white chalk. I want to use this white chalk to paint the mushroom house.
I will link to what I’m in the description Get the pencil, but um, we will start from the bottom and figure out where the bottom of our house is. I’m about two inches or an inch and a half from the bottom of the canvas. You want to leave a little space underneath to make some interesting pebbles Or other decorations you want to add to your mushroom house. I just have to outline this mushroom lightly, so its bottom is wide, but its top is narrow. It does not reach a certain level because the top of our mushroom is on that piece.
Um, I’m going to play with this mushroom block, we’re going to make it a bit. Um downwards, and it’s not balanced here, so I have something with the bottom line, it bends to the right, and then I’m going to bend upwards, and then I’m going to gently make this um I’m going to outline this top.
Hence, its bottom is a bit flat but also curved, and then it will extend outwards, and then I’m going to open this piece and turn it up so that we can see under the top of the mushroom so we can do it underneath. Some interesting textures. An asymmetrical design, if you can also change it, you want to simplify this painting and make it become well. If you want, you can place it where it is not shown. I just want to return me The line here, this chalk can indeed be erased with water.
It can also be erased with a normal eraser. The eraser on my pencil has been used up, but we can use a different eraser, so I kind of go back to my line here. Of course, when we draw this, we can always adjust it to the way we want. Sometimes when you draw it is different, and then you start to draw it, you adjust your shape To adapt to the paint, so this is a pink eraser.
I just want to erase the lines I don’t want. This makes the top of the mushroom tilt slightly to the right to make it look more interesting. Our mushroom house has a chimney, So I want to draw the flute part at an angle upwards. I want to draw the top of the mushroom on the top of the chimney. This is an interesting design. You can customize it. Many different details can be added to it.
I made my tutorial become very simple, But you can change the color, you can add things, you can add flowers, you can add a small mailbox, you can add a lot of different interesting things, I won’t paint er doors or windows or anything else I don’t plan to paint dandelions now. This is just the basics of the house Composition. Before I enter the painting part, this is all the content I want to draw.
It is also very fast. There is a traceable, so I will link the traceable in the description. Still, you swiftly download the tra so that and add It is used in this tutorial if the drawing is not suitable for you or you do not want to draw.
Use our three-quarter flat brush and titanium dioxide
But what we will do next is that we will use our three-quarter flat brush and titanium dioxide. So the top of our mushroom must be coated first Thin white, this will make our red very bright against a dark background, if I paint it red now, it will be a bit dark.
I mean you can do it, but if you want to make bread, It’s bright and prominent. I strongly recommend applying a layer of titanium dioxide on it first so that you are just a thin layer. You’re applying paint, but it’s not necessarily solid, so if that paint is still a blue display in it, that’s okay. It’s enough to make it nice. The direction of the strokes covering our red layer is not important at this point. Still, I have the outline of my strokes, so they will fill this shape along the curved direction, and then I use the smaller area on the bottom le so thato get the tip of the brush.
The smaller area cannot be read until the white is dry, so I will move to the bottom of the mushroom, which is unbleached titanium. I did not rinse my brush, there is still white on the brush, it’s okay, not whether the white is still there Whether unbleached titanium on the brush or on the bleached titanium will make a big difference. It is a very opaque color in one bite, so it provides very good coverage. Well, but it will be our first layer. I will make some shadows later.
But now, this wi excellent olid color that also outlines the strokes. so I want to move my strokes along the direction of the shape. It is a curved shape, so we are using the entire width of the brush to fill it in the middle using the brush Point the tip towards the edge. So you can really define the shape you want to fill, and then fill the whole shape with the solid unbleached titanium color of and I’m using like I said it’s deco art Americana brand, these student-grade paints.
Different brands’ color marking methods are almost identical, so if you are using American decorative art unbleached titanium. It is the same as the basic knowledge of Liquitex on bleached titanium. If you are using artist loft, a few brands give them Different labels, but I always tell people who ask me to change the color. If you just take my color swatch on my website, you take it, and then you will find a similar color. That’s With such a good ID, I published a blog post on my website about the conversion of different brands. But there is no way to make a chart to convert each brand, so sometimes you just need to improvise and do your best.
I think It’s all for having fun. Well, then make everything perfect, do it exactly the way I do it, this is not how it should have fun. We have to continue to rinse the unbleached titanium and then get the cad for me. The red medium-toned white layer has dried up, even if it is not completely dried, if it is stained with a little white paint there, it’s not a big deal, but we have to continue to make our red layer. I won’t go now To make any shadows. I want to cover my white layer with a red layer.
This is what I am doing, and I am still using that three-quarter flat brush to fill the shape with curved outline strokes. This line is here. You want to use the tip of the brush to outline the ice, and it is also painted in red. We will paint the lower part of the mushroom.
Burnt the tan and cleaned some unbleached titanium
I have burnt the tan and cleaned some unbleached titanium. I will use a circle for this brush because it is a smaller area. Our big old brush doesn’t fit well. This is a number four-round brush. So I have burnt tan. I’m just filling this shape here. Um all burnt brown brown so this is the part we look up from the bottom, before drying, if this brown is dry , This step may work better, but I’m a little impatient.
I’m going to put my brush in unbleached titanium, I’m going to make some lines, so there are some texture lines in this area. So I just start from the bottom I’m bending to the top of our mushroom. It looks neat, the unbleached titanium species is mixed with that brown, I’m going to rinse it off. Then I’m going back to retry if this step doesn’t work for you, Because the paint hasn’t dried out and they’re all meshed together. You’ll want to wait for it to dry, and then you can go back and fix the red color, but I did it really fast.
Make a little shadow on the red part of the mushroom
Next I’m going to make a little shadow on the red part of the mushroom.
So I’m going to take a little bit of my brown, I’m on the palette here, and I’m going to distribute it to red so that the red is about two shades darker than our first red, just a bit darker brown there. So about two shades are darker. Um, don’t be too dark, because then the brown will take over super quickly. It will become better and too dark. But I just lightly smeared the darker brown on the bottom right corner of the mushroom Red. Let it have a little shadow area there.
I’m going to add it under that piece um, then I will gently brush it to the rest of the red, if you need to go back and add some Red, let the red blend out. My red is a bit dry so that it can be mixed back. Still, if your red is dry, you can always go back with more red and then make the two shades lighter or two shades Lighter, so add white to your red, so it is a lighter read.
I just very, very gently add this lighter red to the upper left part of the mushroom, and then gently blend it to the middle part, So um, go back there a little bit and use a lighter color on the edges again, you don’t want to add too much white there. we don’t want it to turn light pink. I’m just doing some textured brushstrokes to loosen Remix it in the way of expressing it. Hence, our mushrooms now have a different red tone, so it’s not all solid color. Give it some interesting colors.
See, I’m going to do the same with the unbleached titanium film, so I’m going to add a little burnt Sepia to the unbleached color, so it is about two darker shades. I just want to start from the left, and then I will take the stroke down to create some darker strokes. I won’t cover the whole work. It’s just in. Initially, give it some shades and different colors we applied, so it is not all pure colors.
I can go back there and add some unbleached titanium. The focus is just to give it some different color changes to make it look more interesting, more colorful. Some textured texture strokes fill it in to make sure you have coverage here, so there shouldn’t be any green or blue showing up if you want to go back and change another coat if, for some reason, It still shows up because it won’t provide coverage until we give it a second coat. Okay, so we’re going to continue drawing our chimney.
Dye it gray
I need black because I’m going to dye it gray, and I’ll put my four Three-thirds wash off. I’m going to grab me. This is around four brushes.
So I like to add Mars Black Fresh and Titanium White to my palette. If you need to make gray by mixing black and white, you only need one A little bit of black can make gray. Then if you want to give the flute part of the chimney it has a two-tone appearance. You can add a darker color at the bottom and then blend it into a lighter color on the left. So you just want to add Fill it with a solid color, and then when you are done, I will finish drawing a little white there. Still, when you are done, you can fill the top part with red, if this is what you want, if you want the top of the chimney.
It’s red. I didn’t paint this area white first. I think I can have it, but it’s just an extra step I don’t want to do there, but when you only add red and white is not there, you can see the difference. However, it’s okay, so I just Fill the shape with a cad red medium tone. I am still using the digital four-wheel brush. Then we will not do the white spots until all the red is dry, because if we try to do all these white spots, it will cause a lot Of chaos, now that none of the red is dry, especially the bottom layer, all this will happen before we do it to be very dry. Still, we are going to start our beautiful grass on our grass.
We have some grass texture whores Permanent green and light Olive green, I will use a round brush No. 8, so it is a round brush, which has a heavier load than other brushes in the water. I have to pinch my brush to give it a better look. The camera shakes and grabs a little white. Mix it with olive green. So with this piece of grass, I’m going to start from the back. I’m going to start with a lighter one. I’m going to get mine gradually. THE GRASS BLADES WILL DARKEN when I go to the front; I twist your brush to the paint distribution. Placed is at the tip of your brush. We will make some tall grass blades from behind the horizon. I have to gently brush my brush strokes up and down to create some tip grass and add a little white there.
This Will give you some color changes with some brighter blades of grass behind. They also have different angles, so I just stroke my brush lightly upwards to create that texture, kind of like you flick the brush from the bottom. you are Flick it quickly, and when you reach the top to create the tip of the grass, you release the pressure blade a bit, so I just add a different amount of white to the light green, I won’t go all the way down, so this is the back part of the grass.
Apply a deeper layer
I will apply a deeper layer, so I have not yet reached the bottom of the canvas so that I will make a few shadows. Make the color darker by adding darker green to the lighter green. Brush the brush to the tip, and then we will start below where I started before, and of course, it will blend with it because the lighter green hasn’t dried yet, But I won’t always use that color. I’ll go about halfway, but you can see that it creates a second darker layer.
so when we start with a lighter color in the back and darker in the front, it will give us grass in the painting area. Some size of the area because things in the back tend to be brighter things in the front tend to be darker, so I will gradually add more dark green. I just continue to paint the grass layer and then draw to the bottom of the canvas.
Pay attention to me. How do I leave the part below the mushroom blank? That part is not filled because there will be small pebbles and rocks entering that area. So there is no point in putting all the grass there, so I deliberately let The grass is swaying in that area, so there is no grass in that area. I will continue to wash. Then I will make a small pavement on the cobblestones, so switch my brushes to smaller round brushes. Because these are smaller shapes, I just want to generate grays on my palette randomly? It’s just a medium gray that turns a little bit of black into white. It’s not necessarily something you don’t know, or you don’t even have to mix it all the time.
You can keep its dual-tone of white and gray. Appearance, but basically, I just want to draw some oval shapes under our mushrooms, so different um sizes, slightly changing the shape to stagger the small stones. Well, I think you can do something different here if you don’t want to make one. The small stone path if you want to keep it simple or if you want. you can leave it blank to make it look like a small dirt road, but you still have to be creative, so it depends on you that you have a lot of different details in this painting. You can change and add hastily add black to my palette and add a bit of super dark gray at the bottom. I use my fingers to blend it, so I kind of touch it with my fingers to blend the gray with black.
I will do this for the doors and windows and all the small details of the house next, so I have burnt, and I will get my number four-round brush again. You need a small round brush because these are some small ones we are adding. For details, I will continue to make our door here, so the door is just a basic um-shaped door with a curved top, so I will take my brown and outline it with my paintbrush to start to be vertical.
It will bend, and then it will be vertical, so I made the door shape first. We don’t have to be pe. If it’s not balanced, then use it to perfect it, it will give it more personality, and then when I fill it, So I am going to use brown and white, so I am going to load a little brown on my brush and then load it in my brush. In a little white, I will make all vertical strokes, so this will create wood texture or wood texture Impression, so I’m doing brown and white, I’m painting and downward strokes to mix these two colors, it creates a variety of doors that look like mushrooms
Do Mushroom windows
I’m going to do Mushroom windows, so I have Cadmium yellow, medium tone. You can use any yellow. It doesn’t have to be that exact. I will brighten the yellow by adding white to the yellow. This will also make it more opaque and give you good coverage. Then I will use Mars black because I will make the small lamp next to the door, the small lantern lamp, and the door elves outline the outline in black, so I will continue to use the black loaded No. 4 round brush.
I will use black. I will outline the exterior of the door. If you do a little rock, um, or yes, make a little brick or gray rock around it, it will look cute, but I keep it simple, just a black outline, if you When trying to paint, it doesn’t look very smooth. Paint these things with a little water to help the black flow better, but don’t be too dark or too much water.
Make our little lantern
Then I’m going to make our little lantern here, so I To make a pointed curved triangle tent shape, then fill it with a solid, then I will go diagonally down in two directions, but it will not reach a certain point, it will be flat at the bottom, so our lantern shape Will be filled with yellow, but not now because the black is too wet to be filled with yellow, but you I want to continue to rinse and dry and clean our windows, so the bottom of the window is yellow.
Add a little white to the yellow, like I said, white makes that yellow more opaque, so add it to the yellow and continue to advance Make your window shape, so these window shapes will be the kind of semi-circular rectangular window shape, if you want to make a square, you can do this, if you want to make a circle, there are many different design changes, you can use This is for painting, but with these windows.
I will grab my T-shaped squares very quickly so that I can keep my windows even, so their positions will not be skewed, so I just use it Let’s measure the height of the window to the left and fill it with a solid, and then when the yellow color dries out, we can go back and make the window frame, but we can’t do that until the yellow color dries out. I’m going to fill it with yellow bravely.
Our lantern accidentally dragged it there a bit. It’s black, but it’s not bad. It’s nothing here. I have to draw on it. It won’t be much different. So for our drawing works, you will most likely still show the chalk line, as long as everything in the area is dry. Yes, this will work, but if it’s not dry, we can run the risk of dragging wet paint into it, but I’m going to use baby wipes.
Take a paper towel and lightly wet
I find that baby wipes are a good way to erase chalk because chalk is water-soluble. Sexually using all the water on the canvas is dirty, but the moisture of the baby wipes is just right. You can wipe off the chalk line there and wipe it off, so this is my suggestion. You can also take a paper towel and lightly wet it Paper towel and use it to erase the lines. Hence, the next thing I want to do is the point, so this is an interesting step, super simple. What I am doing is to apply titanium dioxide on the eight circle brush and then paint the whole Circle mushrooms. I’m going to make my circles into various shapes and sizes. They are so small that they are just a point on the tip of the brush.
Some are medium in size, some are large, and some are deformed. I will show you the circle later. Show that some will fall off the edge, so you made a half-circle, so it just hangs on the edge, so we have various circles on the mushrooms. Don’t worry about shadows or similar things. In fact, I didn’t even go back to make any shadows on my body. The circle here will be a big mushroom, and then a small mushroom on the top of our chimney, a piece of it sinks in that area. Then I will continue to paint the doorknob white. Of course, if you want your doorknob to have a different color, you can use white to give it enough contrast so that it will appear.
Make dandelions and vines
I’m going to make dandelions and vines next, so I’m going to wash off my number four, and then I’ll use a darker green, well, the number 4 is what I will The color used here, so slightly fade the dark green distortion to apply it to the tip of the brush. Because we will draw a thin line for the dandelion I will draw a very uneven wavy line from the bottom of the middle area of the grass here It’s very loose.
I’ll make my leaves here. So I like to grab leaves of different colors. The green is whiter, and there are some lighter greens, but I press my brush hard to make my brush strokes thicker and thicker. Create the leaf shape, so I press and use all the bristles, then release to let my leaf get shrunk to a point, so there is only one basic stem and two leaves, nothing too realistic. Maybe I can add more around the bottom, More grass blades.
Draw some smaller blades of grass
Then I’m going to draw some smaller blades of grass that overlap the bottom of the mushroom. It just kind of makes it look like there’s some overlap where the grass grabs some lighter colors there, and then I do something lighter there Grass blades, and then I just distribute those shorter blades of grass around some pebbles, but I will not fill it too much, because we are ready to be green, we are going to be our vines next, so when you Twisting the brush again when loading it really allows the color to reach the tip of the brush but we have this vine growing on the side of the house we can really have fun, creating a twisted curve, it grows on the side of the house.
The curve twisting around the window extends upward to the top of the mushroom, and then you can make small leaf-shaped vines coming out of the side, so just grab some light green there to create different changes in green, so I just drew a very basic Sharp leaf The round pointed leaf shape from the vine, nothing too complicated, you can have fun with this vine and let it surround the even more.
Add some more green plants, it’s up to you, but like I said at the beginning, I keep this design simple and basic, so you can be creative, if you want to add your own special elements, then I like to grab a little bit of white and green, apply a little bit of light on one side of the leaf and give our vine some highlights so that some parts of it will pop out and stand out. Then I will rinse and dry it.
Load white on the tip of your brush
For my fourth round brush, you need some new titanium dioxide. We will make the small stem seeds of dandelion next, so load white on the tip of your brush, we will start from the middle, so at the point of our stem and I just want Flick the brush and drag it outward to create each small stroke, so I just start from the middle, I’m flicking the brush very quickly and almost releasing the pressure, because I flick it to create dots of small dandelion seeds, So I will keep going like this and make sure that the middle part will be nice and bright because there is a lot of paint in that area, um, but the outside will look more delicate because you release the pressure a bit and let the paint dry on some external parts.
You don’t have to do this for all external parts, but on some of them, I am making some small carrot-shaped diagonal lines for the edges of the dandelion seeds, such as two or three small diagonal dotted lines, like I said Yes, you don’t have to do all of these, but many of them will create a dandelion look, and then if you want some pieces to fly away, I didn’t do this for some people.
But if you want some pieces to float in the sky, It looks wonderful, um, but I didn’t do it. I made these little fairy lights. I don’t know if they are fireflies. They may be tiny fairy lights or fireflies, but this is just a kind of Interesting technique to make these fuzzy little lights, so all you have to do is draw a dot on your paint and then smear it outward with your fingers.
It looks perfect on a dark background so that you can make different sizes of yours. You can even add yellow. If you want them to look like fireflies or glowing lights, you can add a little yellow to the white, but I didn’t do that, so just take your finger and apply it outward and you can go back. I’ll be in. This tells you that in one second, if you want to make your middle brighter, you can add more small white spheres in the middle of your glowing circle, so you can use paint to add one in the center of those.The extra white spot I want to highlight this bottom-line part here, white mixed some red, so white and red mixed, just let that part pop out a bit.
Then I want to rinse dry and then make a frame on the window, So go with the burnt sepia to read and make your little plus sign in the middle of the window, and then outline its outer. I am making this bottom a little thicker because sometimes it ends up changing when I record Diagonal lines work at weird angles, so when I try to draw vertical lines, they are not as vertical as I hoped, but that’s okay.
Refresh my unbleached titanium and grab that color
Nothing in our painting is perfect small imperfections. Give your painting more personality, and then make a little bit of the plus sign in our lamp. There is a little bit on the black around my door, and the area is also washed and dried. I will do some more details here. So there is A cute little mushroom that grows next to the house, so I just want to refresh my unbleached titanium and grab that color. I want to continue painting the second mushroom, so this bottom is a skinny bottom mushroom slice a bit wide at the bottom.
It’s a bit narrow at the top. I will let it dry a bit before I do the red part on the top, but I will rinse and grab the lighter green. I’ll make more grass texture. It’s really in the lower-left area of my painting. It’s very dark, so I went in and added lighter blades of grass in that area to give it a little more contrast.
I thought about putting something specific in that area but decided to keep it simple and just make some lighter blades of grass. But just Like I already said, you can be creative and add different elements to this painting. If you want, then I will continue to do my red part, so I used cad red. I didn’t turn it white, just like I did the same when I made the chimney. I didn’t whiten the top part of that p. First, I just got red and made a mushroom shape on top of it, so fill it with your semi-circular wavy bottom.
If it doesn’t give you good coverage, It may be necessary to wait for it to dry and then do the second layer of red, but it can cover most of me, and then wait for it to dry before doing it. Uh, your white spot, but what I’m doing here is I’m going to add some highlights on my window. So on the right side of my window. I’m just going to take that white and make a curve instead of covering all the brown. Still, only in Give it a little white in that area, I am making a little white on the right side of the top triangle.
A little white inside the bright area, and then on the right side of the door, I loosely outline the outside of the door, with a little white very loosely in it. White highlights are added to the top of some rocks. This is a very cool and effective technique because it looks like the light is a little bit so that the rocks are a little shiny at the top. Then if your red is dry, you can do sports. Still, I want to make some highlights on the dandelion leaves, so I draw some small white strokes on the leaves to give your dandelion leaves a little contrast in that area, so wait for your red to change. Then you can go in and do you on that mushroom.
My little white dots, so my friends, this super fun mushroom fairy tale house tutorial is coming to an end. I can’t wait to see all your different changes. If you are now part of our large Facebook group, I can’t wait to see you All the different creative things that came up. The Facebook group has a bigger group. Well, you can share all your paintings there, I’m just there to make the last-minute grass texture brushstrokes, but that’s it. I hope. You like this tutorial.
